This is a memorable beer for me. Not because I enjoyed it. Far from it. Rather, this was the beer that I drank before feeling the effects of a nasty bout of (presumably) Arby’s-induced food poisoning. I don’t blame this beer for making me vomit. However, I found myself thinking while I retched. I was grateful that at least I wasn’t wasting a good beer. No, this beer isn’t offensive, but it has thin flavor and a flat body. It sure as hell isn’t an "Abbey Ale." deyholla (11759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bread note with underlying sugar and a hint of darker grains. Flavor starts with the same bread note that lasts throughout and is complimented by a bit of sweetness from toffee. arventresca (567) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Tap at red robin. Average in every way. Oh well, it was only lunch time. Drink and learn. tgncc (3135) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2013
The aroma is.fruit, caramel, buttery The appearance is deep amber, clear, white head. The flavor is diacetyl, caramel, brown sugar. The finish is sweet, light pine hops, no belgian yeast. Somewhat thin in body. Not especially good. subsonic (82) - Pataskala, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
"poured with thick tan head. had a very roasted taste from the start,and finished with a toffee flavor. the mouth feel was smooth. I really enjoyed this ale, great way to start off the winter months."

On tap at the Ace-Hi Tavern. Brown and clear with a white head. Toasted malts, caramel, toffee, bread, light chocolate and spices. Medium body with a crisp feel. Not bad. jflopsu (1627) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours a dark brownish-amber. Has a light chocolate and malt aroma. Mine was served with a chocolate powdered rim. Taste is strong with chocolate and a nice mix of light malt and some spices. Has a sweet and smooth taste. SilentJo (68) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours reddish brown with thick tan head. Aroma seemed to have a hint of chocolate perhaps? Malty. The taste has a slightly bittersweet taste, with a smooth finish. Not bad but not as sweet as I expected from the label description. penguinfinity (107) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Sweet smell and taste but rather nondescript. Pours clean, amber color with light head. Not too bad, tasty but could be better.
